Schiedmayer Upright Piano (425)

    Serial number 14973. This piano was manufactured in Stuttgard, Germany in the mid 1880’s.
    As yet unfinished, we are fitting new hammers to the action which will give this piano an unbelievable tone.
    The casing has been painted with Napoleonic blue, Annie Sloan chalk paint. Chalk paint reflects different shades of the colour in the light and seems so suitable for a piano with more detail in the structure, like this one. The chalk paint also develops well over time – as one can see in the photographs, the flat blue has developed greater variation with more waxing. Other photographs show the piano freshly painted but not waxed. We think candelabra are called for and with a few gold highlights this should truly be the Emperor’s Piano.
    It is a mammoth piano at 136 cm tall, in true upright grand style – completely over the top. A wonderful piano of the highest quality. Schiedmayer is comparable to any of the top German makes of piano, costing an absolute fortune when made.
    It has 85 keys – with original ivory – and 2 pedals. This piano’s dimensions are a height of 136 cm, a width of 163 cm and a depth of 68 cm.
    JAE 425 Schiedmayer Upright Pianoforte with matching stool is currently under restoration.
